Company’s Description

Finally! Sheer, buildable cheek tints that glide on and feel weightless – (never heavy or greasy like your grandma’s cream blush). Our techy-feeling tint applies effortlessly on top of any foundation or bare skin… no pulling or rubbing needed to make it look right. And you’ll never get that powdery, cakey look that sometimes comes from powder blush. Our modern, yummy shades include a shameless hot pink, a super-healthy berry and natural peachy tints, to name a few. The formula is loaded with good-for-you ingredients like Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Vitamin A, so your skin gets nourished and protected. The color goes on more sheer than it looks in the pan, but since its so buildable, YOU control how much you want to blush. We also love to blend two shades together to mimic a natural flushed effect. Whether you’ve been a fan of cream blush in the past or not, the shades, the silky formula and the little foil snake on the top of our compact will definitely make you a believer.

Urban Decay’s Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints are said to be sheer but buildable cheek colors. There are a total of 7 shades. This review is for Score–a pink-peach with gold shimmer.


Packaging: 9.25/10

Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints come in purple compacts with mirrors in the lid. The top is decorated with a silver snake and the Urban Decay logo.

Quality: 8.75/10

Urban Decay’s color description is spot-on. This color is a peachy-pink with small, gold shimmers.

The color is pretty faint–it only tints the skin slightly. But Urban Decay says up-front that this is a sheer tint.

The consistency is very thin and isn’t oily or heavy. It blends over the skin effortlessly and is somewhat buildable.

You have to be careful if you usually use powder foundation. It’s easy to lose the color almost completely under foundation because of the product’s sheer color.

This isn’t the longest-wearing blush you’ll find and if you have oily skin, you’ll likely see the color fade after a few hours of wear.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

The thin consistency of this blush makes it easy to blend out. You can definitely also use this product on the lips.

Price: 9/10

For $24.00 you get 4 grams (0.14 ounces) of product. Illamasqua’s cream blushes are the same price and size. Stila’s Convertible Colors are $25.00 and 0.15 ounces.
